Is Omnicom Group under- or over-valued?

Valuing Omnicom Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Omnicom Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Omnicom Group's P/E ratio

Omnicom Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 12x. In other words, Omnicom Group shares trade at around 12x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Omnicom Group's PEG ratio

Omnicom Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.2739. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Omnicom Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Omnicom Group's EBITDA

Omnicom Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.3 billion.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Omnicom Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Omnicom Group's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Omnicom Group.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Omnicom Group's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 15.96

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Omnicom Group's overall score of 15.96 (as at 01/01/2019) is excellent – landing it in it in the 15th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Omnicom Group is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Omnicom Group's environmental score

Environmental score: 2.43/100

Omnicom Group's environmental score of 2.43 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Omnicom Group is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Omnicom Group's social score

Social score: 10.6/100

Omnicom Group's social score of 10.6 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Omnicom Group is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Governance score: 4.29/100

Omnicom Group's governance score puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Omnicom Group is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Controversy score: 2/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Omnicom Group scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Omnicom Group has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.

Omnicom Group share dividends

44%

Dividend payout ratio: 44.25% of net profits

Recently Omnicom Group has paid out, on average, around 44.25% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.03% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Omnicom Group shareholders could enjoy a 4.03% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Omnicom Group's case, that would currently equate to about $2.8 per share.

While Omnicom Group's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Omnicom Group may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Omnicom Group's most recent dividend payout was on 8 July 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 June 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Omnicom Group's shares ever split?

Omnicom Group's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 26 June 2007. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Omnicom Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Omnicom Group shares which in turn could have impacted Omnicom Group's share price.

Omnicom Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Omnicom Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $64.5209 up to $90.7537. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

OMC.US volatility(beta: 0.79)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Omnicom Group's is 0.7862. This would suggest that Omnicom Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
